give it a shot
I'd say try it, and see what happens.
It would be interesting to see if nothing else.
And since it's your tank, your opinion on what looks cool is higher on the list than others. No offense to those who hold the opinion.
But they are most likely right about not being able to find information about scaping with algae, as most of the scapers here, try to remove it not culture it.
Best of luck.
